    I've been out all day and when I got home the PC had obviously gone to sleep at a crucial moment because when the screen lit up it was "restarting". However after that the install seemed to go very...

    This is not the place to post this question. Start a new thread. Just so you know I'm not just being unhelpful, I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Interesting - I have two AMD based PCs, but the new build is only being offered on one of them.

    Re: Mobile phone password

    That's worth a look. I'm not going to spend a heap of time on it though - it was only ever a nice-to-have after I unexpectedly re-discovered the phone.

    Re: Mobile phone password

    I think I'm out of luck. If I start Google Maps under IE It is very erratic and just doesn't work properly. If I try to download Chrome on the phone, that doesn't seem to happen either. Remember this...

    Good idea, but unfortunately my wife is no longer with us, and she was actually a pretty bad map reader.

    Re: Mobile phone password

    The plan was to keep the old phone in the car, and just use it for navigation. There is a maps app on the phone, but if I want voice directions, I need to get them from somewhere. Any ideas about how...

    Re: Mobile phone password

    Thanks everyone, and to YouTube, which came to the rescue (as usual). I now have a reset phone that I can get into. It's not all good though, as I can't download the app I was going to use because...

    Will that reset the password as well?
    I'm also not sure how to do that if I can't get into it in the first place.

    Mobile phone password

    I found my old Nokia Windows Mobile cell phone in a drawer, and when I powered it on it still had about 80% charge - after about 2 years, which I thought was quite impressive. However it then asked...

    Definitely worth a look, I would have thought. Also a good point about the plastic case, although I'm not sure how much she actually carries it around. As I said, I still have to do the full...

    Thanks WT. I'm certainly not going to spend a lot of time worrying about it, unless as you say it happens again. And you are all correct, if Word 2010 is working for her, then I'm not going to push...

    Re: New laptop specs

    Thanks 1101, your thoughts pretty much match mine. What I'm not sure is what is going to be awful about a $600 machine? Possibly it will be a Chromebook - don't want that, probably a tiny screen -...

    I got a panic phone call at 8:45am from one of my many tech-challenged friends. The Office shortcuts on her desktop had stopped working. All she was getting was a message saying something like "this...
